Nipsey Hussle‘s death has affected the entire hip-hop community but those of us who knew him are shaken up the most. His family, friends, peers, employees, and everybody that ever came into contact with the Los Angeles rapper is having difficulty processing their emotions after such a strong part of their community was taken away so suddenly. After Nipsey’s murder, his bodyguard retired from the profession, promising to take care of Lauren London and their children for the rest of his life. Another member of Nipsey’s staff has paid tribute to the rapper in a beautiful way, giving his newborn son “Ermias” as a middle name.
Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, passed away at the age of 33-years-old. Jorge Peniche, who worked with the artist as his tour manager, is welcoming a baby boy into the world and he decided to commemorate Nipsey forever by including a piece of the rapper in his name. “World, please welcome our new son,” wrote Jorge. “Luis Ermias Peniche?? April 25th 2019 // 12:05am.”
Peniche shared several photos with his baby boy, telling the world that he feels “blessed beyond measure.” Nipsey Hussle had a huge impact on the people who surrounded him so it isn’t a surprise to see members of his team working extra hard to keep his name and legacy alive.
